Hall of Fame Essay
Bert Berns can’t be easily explained in a few words.
He was a consummate record man who died at age 38 in 1967, after seven years in the record business. He left behind a wife, three small children, and many bereaved friends and associates who loved and looked up to him.
He also left behind a number of angry enemies. Some of them remain pissed to this day.
